You Can Now Buy Ikea Furniture For Your Pet

You Can Now Buy Ikea Furniture For Your Pet

The Debrief: No assembly needed.

Ikea has launched a pet product range for cats and dogs, so they can feel just as at home as you do. 

 The range features beds, mats and bowls for dogs, and scratching posts, blankets and litter scoops for cats.  

'Have you ever felt like your cat or dog wasn’t just a pet, but a member of the family?’ says Ikea.

‘It’s exactly that focus that led IKEA to make the comprehensive LURVIG pet product range.’

The range, called LURVIG, which translates to ‘shaggy’ or ‘hairy’ in Swedish, was developed by Ikea designers and trained veterinarians, and is priced from just $0.79 (60p) to $54.98 (£41.69).  

 

 

This new range, and all your other Ikea favourites, might soon be available to order via Amazon, as the Swedish store has announced it has plans to start selling through third party sites to combat a decline in customers walking through the doors of its physical shops. 

As sales have grown 3.8 percent, Ikea executive Jesper Brodin says he wants to use those gains to ‘invest in meeting the needs of our customers even better.’

The LURVIG pet range has launched in Japan, France, Canada, U.S and Portugal and isn’t available in the UK yet, but if your furry friend really can’t wait, you can both hop over to France and pick something out from an Ikea store there.
